I see that as an advantage.
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Ray Ray still have a longevity edge on Lids?
Bourque struggled at times in the playoffs when teams could key on him in transition, so I think you want to give him more help in transition in the ATD than he had IRL.
Of course you could say the same about Orr to a lesser degree, so it's hardly a damning criticsm.
